Building the Quest MLAS (part 4)

It’s a little too humid for my liking for paint this week, so I’m devoting rocket time to assembly. Having at last done the paint + foam test on the MLAS nose cone, I no longer need access to the bottom of the nose cone, so I finally could proceed with gluing on the shoulder.
